Two new sorority houses are proposed to be built on the 1500 block of W. Kilbourn Avenue.

An affiliate for Cedar Square LLC filed a request for the development to house the Sigma Kappa and Alpha Phi sororities, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Monday. The $1.4 million construction is proposed for what now is a parking lot.

Milwaukee’s Zoning Board of Appeals will hold a public hearing on the proposal at 5 p.m. on Thursday. The board will have to approve a request to construct the houses without the minimum required rear setback or number of parking spaces.

This is a growing trend in the Greek-life community on campus. Another affiliate of Cedar Square started developing a three-story building this past summer to house the Alpha Xi Delta sorority at 1436 W. Kilbourn Ave. All three projects are to be designed by architect Fouad Saab.

Also this summer, the Kappa Sigma fraternity moved into a house that currently holds 35 residents.
